Hard Work Is The Only Path

Pradeep Kumar Yadav Author Interview

Shotokan Karate provides readers with clear guidance on how to achieve black belt. Why was this an important book for you to write?

As I am a Sensei or coach in Karate, my first lesson for the students or Karateka is to teach them about the glossary of Karate with photos, so that they all can learn what Sensei is going to ask them or to perform specific stances. In Karate, Karateka learns from the academy but chances are there that he or she can forget next time when Sensei asks for it. So, mostly I used to give them a small paper where I write about glossary or perform Kata in front of the students. I thought that the book would be an alternative for all the students, if they forget any glossary or Kata stances, the book will be an excellent source. That’s why I wrote this wondrous book.

What is the first lesson practitioners must learn on their path to black belt?

First lesson for the practitioners is that hard work is the only path through which they can earn their Black Belt. There is no other source to get Black Belt. Yes, they can take the benefit through this pictorial book where all the Kata stances are performed by me with High-Definition photographs along with Kata’s description, which is very important to understand.

What were some key ideas that were important for you to explore in this book?

None of the authors or Karate Grandmasters, have written a book which is fully colored, Coffee-Table sized, and a pictorial book on Shotokan Karate. I have made this record and for this record, I have conferred with America Book of Records 2021, International Book of Records 2021, Asia Book of Records 2021, and India Book of Records 2021. Besides these three records, there were some other key ideas which were important to include like history of the evolution of Karate date-wise till the inclusion of Karate in Tokyo Olympics, Karate competition glossary, syllabus for all color belts, etc. I can say it’s a complete package for Karate enthusiasts.

What do you hope is one thing readers take away from your book?

I am sure readers will gain a lot of knowledge and can practice with the help of this book. This is a great book that Karate enthusiasts throughout the world will love to read. It has a lot of information about Karate that readers will take away from my book.

“FOREWORD” for this magnificent book is written by 6 Time World Boxing Champion, M.C. Mary Kom. The remarkable part of this Karate book is that it is fully colored adorned with high-resolution photographs and its coffee-table size makes it a memorable and unique book in the world.
This book is precious and useful for those Karateka who need to take in Shotokan style Karate from White Belt to Black Belt with the aim of full devotion towards learning and rehearsing Karate. Each pursuer of this book will know much about the fundamentals of Shotokan Kata. What’s more, this book incorporates a portrayal of the positions of some advanced movements of the Shotokan style that are performed by me only, so that every Karateka can see clear photos and catch on it quickly in a simple manner.
